The Goodwood Betting Tips - Can The Inevitable claim Group One glory?

The Goodwood 2020 looks a competitive contest with multiple Group One winners set to line up.

Gytrash has been the season's star sprinter, taking out the Lightning Stakes and running two subsequent Group One placings before recording a demolition job of Sunlight at their last encounter.

Can Santa Ana Lane find his best form again or will The Inevitable unleash his trademark turn of foot?

The Goodwood Best Bet - The Inevitable

His first-up run off a seven week freshen up at Flemington on April 25 was nothing short of fantastic, and the perfect tune up for a Group One.

His Newmarket run was certainly flat, seemingly losing his trademark sprint, but clearly Patrick Payne has turned him around, back to his best form.

Although a second placing in a handicap does not look that of a next start Group One winner, he is a tiny horse, yet he lumped 60kg and finished with clearly the fastest sectionals of the day and probably the best overall performance of the day.

He will find himself with 56kg in this race, a much more suitable race with a senior jockey on board which is what he needs.

If he can find the breaks on the turn, there is only one other horse in the race that can close off as good as him.

The Goodwood Value Bet - Santa Ana Lane

The old boy clearly was not at his brilliant best in the All Aged Stakes last start, and his best may well be behind him, but for all the class he has, he does not need to be at his best to win this.

On his day, he is the best sprinter in the world, as we saw in his 2019 TJ Smith win and his Everest placing.

Two starts ago, he was second in the TJ behind Nature Strip (the worlds best sprinter) which is fantastic form coming into this event.

Most will have Santa tracking The Inevitable into the race, two horses that possess powerful finishes, and getting on the back of him may just get his confidence up enough to blow them away late.

For a horse that was a Group One runner up two back behind Nature Strip, the $7 is a little over the odds for him, not to mention he loves to win when not rated in the market.
